Representative Text

1 Trav’ling onward from day to day
Over the vale of time,
We will follow the King’s highway
Over the vale of time.

Gathering home, gathering home,
Meeting and gathering home;
One by one, when our work is done,
Meeting and gathering home.

2 Trav’ling onward, our course we keep,
Over the vale of time;
Now we scatter and now we reap,
Over the vale of time. [Refrain]

3 What if through trials our lot may be,
Over the vale of time?
Rest remaineth beyond the sea,
Over the vale of time. [Refrain]

4 We are nearing the golden strand
Over the vale of time;
Soon we’ll enter the soul’s bright land,
Over the vale of time. [Refrain]
